Stuff To Tune In To And Zone Out On For April 23rd


NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs. Philadelphia Flyers at Pittsburgh Penguins (7:00 EST) – Game 5. The Pens can close out the Flyers in front of the home crowd. After that, you can watch the rubber match in what must be a tape-delayed broadcast (9:30 EST) of Game 5 of the Carolina Hurricanes and the New Jersey Devils series, since the game actually starts at 7:30 EST. Versus, you cads! [Versus]

NBA Playoffs: Boston Celtics at Chicago Bulls, Game 3, series tied 1-1 (8:00 EST); Los Angeles Lakers at Utah Jazz, Game 3, Lakers up 2-0 (10:30 EST). Seriously, how do you East Coasters get enough sleep? [TNT]

The Television-Viewing Equivalent of Getting A Root Canal: Homecoming with Rick Reilly: John Elway. One has horse teeth and the other has no horse sense (Try the veal, but I should tell you, it’s made out of horse – *tap tap tap* Is this thing on?) [ESPN, 7:00 EST]

MLS Soccer: Red Bull New York at Kansas City Wizards. It’s going to be tough on the Wizards to play without Tony Gonzalez. [ESPN2, 8:00 EST]

Thursday Night Comedy: All-new shows on the Peacock tonight. I’ll skip My Name is Earl, but will tune in and watch Parks and Recreation, The Office and 30 Rock. I like Jason Lee and all, but if it isn’t a Kevin Smith movie, I ain’t interested. [NBC, 8:00 EST]
